This is my favorite time of year outside! The yard looks so beautiful and even weeding is still fun and novel at this point in the year. It's also not so hot that you baste in your own perspiration quite yet.
I spent all day working in the yard yesterday and really enjoyed it. Today, is a beautiful, beautiful day--perfect for Easter.
After church today, I walked around and just enjoyed the beauty of nature. One of the things I love about our yard is all the birds--so you have to look at these pictures while imagining the birds in the background.
Mockingbird Cottage from the front. I love the wisteria foliage that grows up those pillars. But for some reason, I just can't get it to blossom, which is disappointing.
Last year a friend gave us a rose tree and I'm so excited to see it grow this year. It's already lovely.
The irises by the driveway. I love big, crowded, lush stands of irises.
Freshly mulched front beds.
The everbearing rose bush by the side of the house. It blocks our air conditioner, and is much prettier to look at. Some friends gave us this bush years ago and it has thrived to the point of taking over the place.
Just put the rock border in yesterday. I quite like it. I need to get more rocks.
The clematis on the back deck.

The back yard rolling down to the woods.
